Scholars to Senate: Grassley Amendment 53 Unconstitutional

"As law professors and scholars of constitutional and immigration law, we urge you to oppose Senator Grassley’s Amendment 53, the “Keep Our Communities Safe Act of 2013.”  The amendment is unconstitutional because it would require prolonged detention without a bond hearing for many people with pending immigration proceedings, and because it would permit the Department of Homeland Security to indefinitely detain many people who cannot be deported." - 67 leading constitutional and immigration law professors and scholars, May 15, 2013.
